The 90 minute Full Session is ideal for clients who have more complex issues to be addressed (e.g., car accident, injury, etc.). Full sessions are also great for those looking for “a really good full body massage” IN ADDITION TO the need of a more specific problem area to be addressed. These areas may include a focused approach to neck and shoulder pain, relief from headaches, treatment following an injury or surgery, low back restriction/discomfort, opening the chest area, lymphatic drainage therapy and education, and more. And, some clients realize that a 90 minute massage allows them to relax more fully and more deeply than a 60 minute session.
Laura graduated from the acclaimed Hawaiian Islands School of Medical Massage Therapy on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1996 where she accumulated over 1,200 hours of education in school alone.

Since that time, she has added thousands of hours of continuing education in bodywork, fascial release, movement and healing arts. In addition to massage, Laura's work includes: Pilates Certifying Instructor with Pilates Academy International (PAI), STOTT Pilates, Yoga Therapy, GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS sessions, Meditation, Body Rolling, Chi Kung sessions, and more.
